" I am convinced that through simple actions filled with common sense, we can help those in need. We can do this, for example, by sharing with others what we are fortunate to have but no longer need "
Juliette Dumas, President
Created by Juliette Dumas, inspired by her Shine state of mind, which she created and adopted to rekindle her inner light. Shine is a source of goodness that glows within and radiates to those around us.
" As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same " - Nelson Mandela.
With founding members Aline Tauzias, Christine Fourcade-Goyard and Emmanuel Maze-Sensier by her side, she upholds the purpose and vision of You Share You Shine: sharing what we are fortunate to have but no longer need, for the good of those who have less.
We coordinate and encourage responsible environmental and social action using simple ideas inspired by common sense recycling.
Since 2016, we have collected:
Extra or unused blankets with Cover Stories.
Toothbrushes, toothpaste and other toiletry items with Business Class Angels, who gather airline amenity kits from business and first-class travelers.
Bath and hand towels from hotels and spas with Extra Towel.
In France, You Share You Shine has partnered with associations to help those in need. More than 2,500 amenity kits and 3,000 blankets have found a second life since the start of our donation collection initiatives.
